It is hard to believe that it was almost ten years ago I witnessed a CNC router in action for the very first time. I was fascinated with what I saw and simply had to have one! Although I had been in the creative end of the three dimensional sign business for most of my life I didn't really know what I would do with one - but I just knew it could do fantastic stuff.

Through extensive research and LOTS of hands-on practice I quickly found out that my MultiCam router was capable of just about anything imaginable.This journal will chronicle that journey to date and continue each week with two or three entries as I continue to explore just what is possible with this wonderful tool... -dan

Coat after coat of paint

The bugs were painted multiple coats of base colours and then a series of glazes to highlight the various bits and mechanical components. With each successive colour the bugs came to life. The painting is going well with two days left before we are shipping the bugs out we only have the final colours on the lettering left to do.
